Snainton Riding Centre has established a reputation as an important competition venue in North Yorkshire. Throughout the summer we hold five affiliated dressage competitions and six unaffiliated competitions. All details for affiliated competitions can be found in the British Dressage Omnibus Schedules.

The first five unaffiliated competitions include one preliminary and one novice class. The first four competitors in each class will qualify for our final Championship show which is held at the end of the summer. Competitors will be competing for the Preliminary Championship to which Mrs Pamela Macfie has kindly donated the Champagne Punch Cup, and the Novice Championship with the chance to win The World Boy Cup. Riders under 16 can participate in the preliminary classes as junior competitors competing for the McClarron Cup kindly sponsored by McClarron Insurance.

Running alongside our unaffiliated competitions this year we are holding British Dressage Team Quest. Please click here to download a Team Quest Entry Form.

All our competitions at Snainton Riding Centre offer a superb opportunity for clients to practice their skills and for spectators to come and watch - an event to be enjoyed by everyone.
